Hey!
I'm stipelun and I am just starting to get into the aquarium world. I dont currently have my own tank but I have been helping my roommate with their tanks. He is currently working on a cory tank. I would personally like to start a shrimp tank. I have a lot to learn and look forward to hearing advice from you all.

I agree with @hansgruber7
Shrimp tanks are awesome.
I never thought I could get so much enjoyment out of such tiny creatures, but they are so fun to watch, and active, and even have personalities. I have a red cherry shrimp colony, and several others on here keep shrimp.
Ask for advice about water parameters first to make sure they are acceptable, I am not as knowledgeable about those things as I should be as I only keep species based on my tap water.
Welcome!

Shrimp tanks are great. A great way to start into the hobby. I've got three tanks with shrimp in them. Blue Velvet shrimp are my favorite.
I love the look of the blue velvet! I was thinking maybe those and a few black neocaridinas.
